They are called aerial roots. I get them on my rotala, cabomba, and hygro all the time. Most of the time, if I don't trim anything, a new stem branches from that point, or if snip the top off below the roots a new stem grows from the substrate. It seems that my really healthy stems do this more than the ones that are sub par.
